Tired of dropping goggles and losing them on the bottom of a pool or lake? Try out my idea for DIY Pool Noodle Goggle Holder Floats. They are so easy and quick to make.
We are pool owners and we love it! However, we frequently have a problem with goggles. The kids will take off their goggles in the pool and let go which causes the goggles sink to the bottom. To retreive the goggles, I have to get the net or give the kid another pair of goggles so he can swim down and retrieve the goggles at the bottom of the pool. I’ve come up with a solution, a hack to preventing sinking goggles by making my new design for DIY Pool Noodle Goggle Holder Floats. This is such a simple concept, but it will enhance swim time immensely eliminating the goggle sink.
Kids could easily make this DIY project on their own. They could pick the colors or design of their goggle float holder. A great DIY craft project for kids this summer.

Supplies Needed to Make DIY Pool Noodle Goggle Holder Floats
The supplies needed for this project are very easy to find at many stores. They include the following items.
- pool noodles
- carabiners, one per goggle holder float
- 11 inch zip ties
- serrated knife to cut pool noodle into sections
- scissors to cut off excess zip tie
How to Make It
Simply cut up a new pool noodle into sections, either 4 to 5 inches long or one inch long sections to make a multicolored goggle holder float. String an 11 inch zip tie into the hole of the noodle sections, string zip tie through a carabiner, and zip tight. The goggle strap can easily be added to the carabiner. This carabiner clip will secure the goggle strap to the noodles to serve as a goggle holder.
How They Work
The kids won’t be asking for someone to hold their goggles anymore because they can clip them into the holder. They won’t have to set them on the pool edge and worry about the goggles being stepped on (I like this one as mom because I don’t want to buy new goggles for them!)
The goggles can float around the pool until the kids are ready to put them on again.
Store them in the goggles basket for easy storage and quick access. They are still small enough where they won’t take up too much room in the basket. The pool noodle sections are strong enough to even keep the bigger over the nose goggles afloat. The goggles can float around the pool all day and not be lost. Some of our goggles are blue or white so they blend in with the bottom of our pool when they sink making them hard to find. This goggle holder also helps the kids keep track of their goggle since they are easy to find when attached to a colorful floating goggle holder.
Pool Noodle Goggle Floats Will Even Keep Multiple Goggles Afloat
We tried attaching multiple pairs of goggles to the pool noodle goggle floats and they were able to keep all the goggles afloat. This is great because multiple kids can attach their goggles to one goggle float and they won’t sink.
